We’re grateful to Dawson Co-op Food Store for their support and commitment to help their community. Their generosity will provide 10 medical access travel arrangements for residents of Dawson Creek who must travel far from home for vital medical care. www.hopeair.ca

Hope Air is an organization committed to providing families with flights and accommodations when they need to travel long distances for vital medical care. Due to the pandemic, there is an even greater need for this service as appointments are rebooked and job losses make travel even less affordable than ever. Last year, Hope Air provided 13,097 travel arrangements nation-wide, of which 145 were for patients living in Dawson Creek, British Columbia.

It is the Dawson Co-operative Unions vision to build sustainable communities through collaborative means and have committed to providing approximately 10 medical access travel arrangements (i.e. 8 flights and 2 nights of accommodations) to ensure that patients living in Dawson Creek can reach their vital medical appointments despite cost and distance. If you are in need of these services please visit Hope Air or their website https://hopeair.ca/ for more info.

Our Story

Hope Air is Canada’s only national charity arranging free flights to low-income patients who must travel far from home to access medical care. Hope Air helps make Canada’s universal healthcare accessible by bridging the distance between home and hospital, patient and physician.

When was the last time you visited a medical specialist? How far did you have to travel?

In Canada, healthcare coverage starts at the door of the doctor’s office. How you get to the doctor and any related travel costs fall to you. For people living in small and rural communities across the country, travelling long distances to their specialist medical appointments comes at a cost of time or money. Canadian families living near or below the poverty line can afford neither.

We're the only national charity providing free flights to low-income Canadians who must travel to specialist medical care that does not exist in their communities. Hope Air believes that where you live in Canada and how much money you make should not determine your ability to access our healthcare system. A free flight lets families focus on what is truly important – their health.
